Today’s skin care is loaded with toxic chemicals, including parabens, phthalates, petroleum and fragrance. How does this affect our bodies? What does it do to the environment? The solution?
Local company cares for skin and the environment
Victoria BC, Mar 12th – 2013 – Glow Luxe Skin Care now carries the proprietary, advanced cosmeceutical skin care lines, from Glow Rescue Skin Rx, and Benir beauty, addressing the issue of toxic chemicals in our products and how they effect or bodies and the environment.
Do you really know what you are putting on your skin? Do you know what those same chemicals are doing to the environment once they go down the drain? With so many mysterious chemicals in your average skin care product, not to mention some 400 chemicals involved in the creation of “fragrance”, it is a huge problem for the average consumer to navigate through what is beneficial and what is toxic to their bodies.
“Natural does not necessarily equal safe”, says Shelley Rollick of glow luxe, “as many companies drown their organic ingredients in large amounts of parabens, pthalates, petroleum and fragrance, negating the benefits and rendering these products harmful or even toxic to our bodies.” A proliferation of hormone “mimickers” in the environment, wreak havoc with natural ecosystems and the creatures that inhabit them….humans included.
Taking this to heart, Shelley set out to develop a line of active products that could utilize the most up to date breakthroughs in cosmetic science, while at the same time creating clean, pure products that are environmentally safe. Shelley Rollick took her formulations and cosmetic chemistry expertise to a group of cosmetic chemists, allowing her to realize her goal by creating the “glow rescue skin cosmeceuticals” product line.
Glow Luxe Skin Care has a core philosophy of using only non-toxic, environmentally safe ingredients in it’s products.
